The remit of the grant fund continues to offer clubs grants of a maximum of 50% towards
the cost of coach education courses (e.g. Level 2/3 etc) and other related rowing
training (e.g. launch driving, trailer driving etc). £6,000 is available for the
current NRC year to November 2019.
Eligibility for grant
Applications for grant must be made on the application form downloadable above in
the name of clubs within the Northern Region, not by individuals. Applications from
Durham College Boat Clubs must be made through the Captain of DCR . Clubs can then
fund individuals undertaking training related to the development of rowing as set
out in the form.
Conditions of grant
Grants will be awarded to clubs, not to individuals up to a maximum of 50% of the
cost of any training. The level of grant awarded will be at the discretion of the
Grants Sub Group (See below). Grants cannot be awarded retrospectively. Applications
must be received before training starts.
Grants will normally be expended within 6 months of award. Any extension to this
time period will need to be approved by the NRC sub group (see below). Clubs will
undertake to enter into a formal agreement with individuals receiving grant to ensure
appropriate volunteer time is given for a two year period. Any variation to this
requirement must be formally approved by the NRC Sub group prior to any individual
Any individual not completing the agreement will be required to repay grant on a
pro rata basis related to how much time they have committed. ( for example, one year
volunteering would require repayment of 50% of grant received). Repaid grant will
be reinvested in the regional fund for the benefit of others.
Applications from clubs to be submitted to the Regional Rep on the prescribed form.
This will include a requirement to make a case for why the grant should be awarded.
The Regional Rep will make recommendations to a small sub group of the NRC Executive
comprising the Chair, Vice Chair and Treasurer who will formally agree the award
of grant and at what level. All decisions will be reported on a regular basis to
the Executive and an annual review of the scheme will be presented to the NRC’s AGM
Applications for funding can be made at any time and grants will be awarded until
the £6,000 ceiling is reached.
Grants will be paid to clubs on receipt of a certificate of completion. If there
is no such certificate, written confirmation from the course leader stating satisfactory
attendance needs to be submitted. Payment will be by cheque.
